What are NS records? Why are they crucial for your domain?
The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the simplest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will be managed on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), and so on, so if you want to change any of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain name you want to access. In this way the web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, offered with with our shared hosting plans, will enable you to handle the name servers of each and every domain address registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you simply won't encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to change the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain names together. In addition we offer you the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to forward the domain to their system. In contrast to other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
